SWEETTABLESCAPES specializes in small, bite-size and guilt-free desserts, so when we found these adorable Mini babkas in The Holiday Kosher Baker by Paula Shoyer, we were smitten. They are perfect for your holiday gathering!
1/4 cup warm water
1/2 oz (2 envelopes) dry yeast
1/4 cup plus 1 tsp sugar, divided
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
4 TBsp margarine, at room temperature for at least 15 minutes
1/4 cup canola oil
1 large egg plus 1 egg white
1/2 cup margarine at room temp
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup mini chocolate chips
Combine with a dough hook until all ingredients are mixed in.
To make filling:
Cover with plastic wrap and let sit at room temperature while the dough is rising.
Preheat oven to 325F. Place mini muffin paper cups into mini-muffin pan.
To assemble and bake:
On a large piece of parchement paper sprinkled with flour, roll each piece of dough into a 9X12-inch rectangle so that the 12-inch side is facing you.
Repeat with rest of the dough.
HAPPY ROSH HASHANAH!!!
